Another Funeral Home Adds A Drive-Thru Viewing Window For Visitation
Innovative or blasphemous? The Oliver and Eggleston Funeral Establishment in Farmville, Virginia is offering drive-thru viewing of loved ones in caskets.
This unique viewing service was created by Carl Eggleston, who also offers fingerprints of the dearly departed on rings, pendants and ear rings.
“You can stay in your car and ride by this window, see your loved one, also see when the place and time of service is going to be held, on this board here, without leaving your car,” Eggleston told WTVR-TV.
“You can have a regular viewing, in a regular room and then at night, if you want us to roll you over here and put you in here, we can put the person in here.”
Eggleston believes the drive-thru option could be used especially during bad weather or by people with disabilities.
He also plans to have video cameras installed in the funeral home’s chapel so that the services can be viewed online from anywhere.
